Here below we summarize the main features, just enough to understand what types of electronic systems TSP is able to create according to customer specifications.

  • microcontroller dsPIC33FJ256MC710a from Microchip
  • 24 inputs working at 24 V
  • 24 PNP outputs working at 24 V
  • differential incremental encoder interface
  • CAN bus
  • 2 x RS232
  • RS422/RS485 optoisolated
  • I2C Bus
  • estended power supply 9-30 Vdc
  • dimension 188 x 130 mm

Here below you can see some details about the layout and the PCB.

Microwave detector and counter for sheets of paper

For a particular industrial application, a special microwave sensor has been invented and patented. Its use is foreseen when it is necessary to count the number of sheets of paper within a specific volume. It is used to check the number of sheets taken from a pile so as to know with certainty, for example, how many will end up in an envelope. The following diagram shows how it can be used.

Schema di montaggio

The system is composed of:

  • an electronic unit that generates and emits a microwave RF signal and subsequently carries out the measurement of its power after it has interacted with the material;
  • a cavity within which the measuring material is placed;
  • connection cables for the RF signal.
SNA v1.2

The measurement takes place in a very short time (<1 ms) and in contactless mode: the material is not altered at all.
